I recently got the game Area 51. The second I try to play it with my 6600GT and any Forceware 81.XX based driver, artifacts starts to occur. This is not an issue with the game because 78.01 works fine with it. This is also not a heat issue because I have efficient cooling for my graphics card.
Using Google, I found another thread about this issue. No fixes except reverting back to previous drivers are listed. I am not overclocking any components in my PC.
Please Help!

I wanted to get that game. Still will as I think it would be fun.

I have a 6600GT card too. I'm guessing you'll just have to keep using earlier drivers for the time being. I'm using the 81.85 drivers myself and haven't had any problems with any games, but I don't have Area 51 yet.

Sorry I couldn't help. I wanted to reply because it seemed no one else would. Hope you like the game anyway :)

I'm getting this game soon, because I loved playing it drunk on the old Xbox.
Got me worried now..... does it do that all the time?

I have not had a single problem with this game. I am using the 81.94 drivers.

I am using the latest patch with the game, the problem is still there.
I finished the game using 78.05 drivers.
Some say changing desktop's resolution to the same resolution as the game will fix the problem. I will try it and report back.

It happens the most often when glass is present, or glass shatters in the game.
The resolution thing did not work either.
